Lady Burra Brewhouse – Opening Launch

After more than six months of hype surrounding the construction site at Topham Mall, Lady Burra has finally flung open the doors to the people of Adelaide. Adelaide city’s first and only fully functioning microbrewery, located in the transforming thoroughfare between Currie and Waymouth Streets, connects the developing Riverbank precinct with some of Adelaide’s most…

Zootz Kitchen Bar

I’ve been to Zootz several times, but only for social salsa dancing. Once every month, they clear all the tables and chairs, and turn on the latin music for people to practice their dance moves. As far as food goes, I’ve never had the urge to eat here, mainly due to negative social media reviews….

Omurice House

Omurice House is located in the International Food Plaza food court in the Chinatown. For those who aren’t in the know, omurice is an omelette made with rice. As the title of the store suggests, their specialty is omurice dishes with either a cream or curry sauce and a protein of your choice. They also…

My Tho City

My Tho City is a medium sized restaurant located close to the Entertainment Centre on Port Road. As you walk in the entrance, you enter the outdoor dining area which is divided into smoking and non-smoking sections. The inside is more traditionally decorated with an old rickshaw in one corner of the room. They’re menu…

Thai Spice

For a restaurant, Thai Spice is deceptively larger than it appears. With entrances from the front and rear, I think you could easily fit 80 people in here. With that being said, there is limited parking at the rear of the restaurant, so I can’t see this place ever being a full house. The decor…

Mylk Bar

Adelaide will no longer be known as the “City of Churches”, but more the “City of Bars”. Mylk bar is one of the latest bars to open up in Adelaide. Located on Flinders Street, at the Victoria Square end, most of the clientele that visit here are white collar workers. The external facade of this…

Laksa House 2

After reading the positive reviews about this place, I thought I would give this place a try. Located on the western side of Flinders Street, Laksa House 2 is a small place that holds about 26 people (20 on the inside and 6 on the outside). There’s a Laksa House 1 in the Market Plaza…

Rose Garden Thai

Don’t judge a restaurant by its crappy decor. This rings very true, particularly for this place. The external appearance of this place reminds me of a run down crack house, while the internal is a bit more presentable. I would never have considered this place had I not read some positive reviews of the place….

Maiz & Mezcal

I’ve heard reasonably good things about Maiz and Mezcal, so I was happy to make the journey out east to see what all the fuss was about. The place is located on busy Magill Road and is of a reasonable size. Taking up the floor space of 3 small shops, it could easily accommodate over…

Cherry Blossom Sushi – Pulteney St

Cherry Blossom is a small store located just outside Adelaide University on Pulteney Street. This particular store has a bit more variety than the other stores. They sell your usual sushi, sushi packs, udon noodles and bento boxes. The store itself is quite small with seating only available for 14. Today, I decided to order…

Yakitori Takumi

Yakitori Takumi is a Japanese restaurant located close to the eastern end of Melbourne Street in North Adelaide. Unlike other conventional Japanese restaurants, there is no sushi or sashimi at this place. Their main specialty is yakitori, which refers to skewered food. The dishes come in small portions and the place is really a Japanese…

Chopstix – Rundle St

Chopstix on Rundle is one of two stores in Adelaide of the same name, that offers a combination of Thai, Vietnamese and Chinese cuisine. Spread over two floors, this place is modernly decorated with a seating capacity of about 100 people. Service can be a bit slow at times, not because the place was busy,…
